If you’re taking phentermine or thinking about taking it, it’s a good idea to consider some form of regular exercise you want to do to lose even more weight and further increase your sense of well being. Exercise can be anything from cleaning the house, walking around the neighborhood to going to a gym.
Whatever suits your fancy. But, whatever you do it doesn’t need to be strenuous but you should do it everyday if you can. After all, Phentermine can’t do all the work, so you need to do a little extra on your own part.
Phentermine is an appetite suppressant not a miracle. It will help to quench your food cravings and that will help you lose weight but exercise will give that extra added weight loss that will really make a difference in much less time. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at some types of exercise you can do when taking phentermine.
One of the simplest forms of exercise is walking. It’s amazing how healthy it can be. Walking at a fairly decent speed (not a power walk but something close to a 15 minute mile) can be invigorating and calorie burning. This would be on the order of 4 miles per hour. This burns about 415 calories. Not Bad!
There are a number of fast exercises available today like Zumba. If you can handle fast paced movement and enjoy music, this might be just the ticket for you. If you’re into dance, consider taking a dance class. My favorite is swimming. I use a mask and snorkel so I can swim faster because you get more air. It’s easy to do a lap per minute. Do 60 laps in an hour and you can burn 600 to 700 calories. The nice thing is that you are essentially in a gravity less environment so it doesn’t put any pressure on your joints. This routine and phentermine will cut the weight down fast.
Some of you may be into Yoga or Tae Bo. If you’re new to Yoga but curious about it, it is a Hindu spiritual discipline that involves learning about breath control, meditation and practicing specific body postures that are supposed to promote health and relaxation. Since this is a difficult exercise, you’ll need to start out with the basics and see how far you can get with it.
There are a number of different Yoga practices and goals so you’ll need to educate yourself on the different types. However, the most well known are Hatha Yoga and Raja Yoga. Yoga classes are found just about everywhere and many of them are free.
If you’re more into Tae Kwon Do and/or Karate, you might want to consider Tae Bo. Tae Bo has been around for about four decades and is quite popular. It combines boxing, Tae Kwon Do and other fitness practices with fast-paced music. If fast paced exercise interests you, then Tae Bo may be just right for you.
Keep in mind that phentermine will help you lose weight but you will need to do some kind of exercise on a regular basis to make it work properly.
